My girls are wimps!

August 1, 2009

I just bolted outside to see what child had lost a limb. You would think someone had by the amount and the tone of screaming. 

I made them fish it out…

When that got old after 10 minutes of uncoordinated fun, I tried myself to catch the intruder. Hmmmm, harder than it looked.
I finally got him and let Emma show him off!

It was a crawfish, or mud bug, whatever you call them in your part of the country. Darn, too bad there was only one. A few more and we could have had dinner. “Them are good eatin’!”

Do you ever find random bugs, crawfish, animals in weird places? 


What is a Compound Word?

March 17, 2009
As I am typing, the kids are supposed to be cleaning the playroom. This is all I hear:

Emma: “No it’s NOT!”

Paige: “Yes it IS!”

Avery: “Uh huh!”

I stormed in. “Why aren’t you picking up your toys!?” Emma answered, “Mom! Paige said that ‘clean up’ is a compound word!” To which Paige argued, “It is! It is!”

So there you have it-my kids are so smart they argue about what is compound and what is not… while cleaning their playroom.

Lemonade Stand

February 24, 2009

How could you not stop by this stand and get some lemonade from these four little girls?  You can’t!  They’re too cute.  We decided that it was finally time to dejunk the garage this Saturday, and while we were cleaning we had quite a few people stop and start “shopping around” what they thought was a garage sale.  Guess we had a lot of crap.
So the girls thought they’d do a lemonade stand, it’s the traditional activity when Mom and Dad are cleaning the garage or having a sale.  It’s perfect for two reasons: 

1.  It kept them occupied and 
2.  It kept them occupied.
Paige and Emma busied themselves getting the tables and chairs, Aunt Anna made the lemonade and I made the sign.  Soon they were out to make their first dollar.  It was so funny to watch them interact with their guests.  All in a five minute period, this is what was going on:
Emma looked like an air traffic controller waving cars in to park so they could get lemonade
Paige was doing a butt swinging dance and then pointing to the sign 
Avery was waving like Miss Texas
And Storie was licking all the straws (and putting them back) and drinking all the lemonade.
As the show went on, Storie became even more helpful-adding straws (the licked ones) to drinks, taking a sip and announcing, “Is good!!”  
I know what business I’m going into next, lemonade stands.  They made $26!!! 

Paige’s Birthday!

January 15, 2009

Paige had a great party! She got lots of cool gifts, the best being Heely’s from Grandma and Grandpa!  I can hardly believe she is seven now.  She is getting to be such a beautiful girl, smart and so fun to be around.  We really are so proud of her!
